I have not written or been around much. I truly have tried to leave the world of BK behind for several reasons. I seemed to have become a target for players and snakeoil salesmen, I fell in love on this site and had my heart broken on this site.....and the turn of the blogs from fun, friendly escape to vicious,rumor mongering made me sad and uncomfortable........so I made the decision to leave. My friends that I have made here...are that...my friends and we are in contact and see each other. They are the positives that I have packed in my bags and taken on my journey with me. But I still check in to read the blogs and see if the fun of the old days has returned.....sadly, for the most part...they haven't. I guess I will speak my piece and then quietly disappear again.....what is happening here is very sad, depressing and discouraging...we are all adults and need to begin acting like adults. Yes...I am a Pollyanna. I truly believe that disagreements can be handled quietly, calmly and resolved peacefully....and PRIVATELY. The blogs have become a place to air grievances with others, to use profanity and defame others character....PUBLICLY....which allows a feeding frenzy for others to get involved. The more people that get involved...the more unlikely things will get resolved. We all came to BK for a reason...the love of riding, the love of writing, to meet fellow riders,to help fill the loneliness..... to find the love of our lives......we all carry scars and baggage with us.....but, we are all basically good people. We are all human beings with hopes and dreams and losses and regrets... we need to start treating each other with love and respect.....and sometimes the best way to handle a bad situation...is to just shut up and not say anything....we are not children....negative attention is NOT better than none..... I hate the fact that friends are attacking friends.....some are hiding behind false profiles to take nasty potshots at others and profanity flies like water and hurtful, hateful words are used on others. I am sure that some of you will call me a Pollyanna or unrealistic or crazy...so be it ...it is your right to think of me what you will.....but I have been able to get my points and thoughts across on a variety of subjects without ever attacking some one....and so can you. Life is precious....watching someone you love slowly die teaches you that....don't waste what precious time you have on anger and hatred....life is about living and loving...... Peace to you all....Merry Christmas......and I wish for all of you your hearts desire. Peace...... Sunset

Much love to you Redsunset...you are a very wise woman. Taking the high road is never a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength. I'm hoping for your return in 2008!

I appreciate everyones comments...however my meaning may have been misconstrued. I had left BK quite awhile ago....I felt I had nothing left to offer....that I had said all I could say and to be honest...the memories were just too overwhelming. Yes, I would check in to read the blogs...but for the most part I stayed silent. I decided to speak up because I was so disturbed with all the in-fighting, name calling and anger. My point was to try to get you to think before you spoke out in anger....to weigh your replies with more compassion and understanding......or to do what is difficult for all of us......remain silent. And I am not judging anyone for what they do or say....that is not my job. We will all be judged in the end by ONE who knows all that we have done, said or didn't do or say ...at the end of time. Sometimes the best defense......is nothing....negativity feeds on negativity...if there is none...it dies or goes away. I am not a coward just because I say nothing or take the high road. I am a fighter but I have learned to pick my battles and fight for what is truly worthy At this most wonderful,caring,sharing and holiest time of the year....just take pause and count your blessings......try to understand better what motivates someone ....before you speak. I love you all for your strengths, weaknesses and talents...we all bring something to the table....and the banquet meal could be so wonderful with all of us sharing together. Peace...love....and best wishes. Sunset

Re: I will miss you and I hope you think twice about leaving. As for me, I have thick skin and really don't give a rat's patooty what people say that I do not know personally. This place reminds me of high school often. Replete with adolescent slumber party questions made up as blog titles. Unstable abusive people loosing it, really showing how damaged and emotionally arrested they are are. Then there is the positive side of staying here, bloggers with wit,humor,wisdom, creativity, and compassion for someone they don't even know. So stop trying to be peacekeeper and just be. We can never control other people, make them change, grow up, place nice , if they do not want to. Bikerornot seems to have a bigger element of mature people who can respect others despite dissagreement but that place has drawbacks to. No place is perfect. SO you may be weary, but don't quit. Don't give your power away to assholes, by tucking tail and running. " NO one can make me leave anywhere by what they say on a stupid blog.." QUOTE: Spiritvtwin Wise advice, Teach and Sunset. Listen to him. TeachOnWheels write: Nope Cruisin, Sue and I are gone. We will stay in touch with you, but this is no place for intelligent(don't need to use the f word), respectful, supporting people to hang. Take care and protect yourself.

Good to see you. We miss you. Players and snake oil merchants - I usually play them back just for amusement. You too can be the writer and drama queen in your own drama. Just chose to write it yourself and to turn out your way. To those who care and choose to stay and those who care and choose to go or drop out because of teh stings. Remember, most shit stirrers can usually be counted on one hand. Missed you redsunset. But you need to get energy and positiveness from this site, not have it taken away or drained from you. I think we all need ti chose a sign or symbol or picture to put on a blog which is becoming negative and destrutive. I have picked out one of a yawn. maybe by joint effort and swamping a blog. not with arguement but a sign that we will not feed into it will push that kind of thing into oblivion or at least not give it such a long shelf-life I do not believe that anyone os if perfect and right all the time and I do believe in the ability of the community in pulling things back into line and pointing out when someone is out of order. I think of the last scene of Merlin with Sam Shepherd where he destroys Morgana by everyone turning their backs on her and acting as if she wasn't there. She screamied for a while but she eventually disappeared. Junie

Hey you!! Good to see you. You post is lovely. I know I am being counted and weighed as a...not so Pollyanna, non the less,I do have a good heart and soul and spirit. I will always stand up for what I believe in. Sometimes,my issue or crusade will get ugly. That more often,than not,depends upon who or what opend up my Pandoras box. Once opened up,one will conjour up,the nature of my beast. If I am to be judged harshly for that,so be it. I am flight,not flight. Aside from that,I do hope that you have a beautiful and blessed Holiday Season. xoxo
